Question #1: It is believed that Danle’s decision to omit disclosure relating to the class-action litigation was not appropriate for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2009. This conclusion was reached because both litigations were determined to not be “probable” and thus need not be accrued for (as required by ASC 450-20-25-2), yet Danle’s legal counsel concluded that the litigation could “potentially but not probably” cause a future loss. The use of the word “potentially” can be reasonable assumed to mean reasonably possible, which is defined as more than remote but less than probable. ASC 450-20-50-3 states, “Disclosure of a contingency shall be made if there is at least a reasonable ...view middle of the document...

Information available before the financial statements are issued or are available to be issued (as discussed in Section 855-10-25) indicates that it is probable that an asset had been impaired or a liability had been incurred at the date of the financial statements. Date of the financial statements means the end of the most recent accounting period for which financial statements are being presented. It is implicit in this condition that it must be probable that one or more future events will occur confirming the fact of the loss.
* b. The amount of loss can be reasonably estimated.
The purpose of those conditions is to require accrual of losses when they are reasonably estimable and relate to the current or a prior period. Paragraphs 450-20-55-1 through 55-17 and Examples 1–2 (see paragraphs 450-20-55-18 through 55-35) illustrate the application of the conditions. As discussed in paragraph 450-20-50-5, disclosure is preferable to accrual when a reasonable estimate of loss cannot be made. Further, even losses that are reasonably estimable shall not be accrued if it is not probable that an asset has been impaired or a liability has been incurred at the date of an entity's financial statements because those losses relate to a future period rather than the current or a prior period. Attribution of a loss to events or activities of the current or prior periods is an element of asset impairment or liability incurrence.

450-20-50-3 Disclosure of the contingency shall be made if there is at least a reasonable possibility that a loss or an additional loss may have been incurred and either of the following conditions exists:
* a. An accrual is not made for a loss contingency because any of the conditions in paragraph 450-20-25-2 are not met.
* b. An exposure to loss exists in excess of the amount accrued pursuant to the provisions of paragraph 450-20-30-1.
450-20-50- 5 Disclosure is preferable to accrual when a reasonable estimate of loss cannot be made. For example, disclosure shall be made of any loss contingency that meets the condition in paragraph 450-20-25-2(a) but that is not accrued because the amount of loss cannot be reasonably estimated (the condition in paragraph 450-20-25-2[b]). Disclosure also shall be made of some loss contingencies that do not meet the condition in paragraph 450-20-25-2(a)—namely, those contingencies for which there is a...
